Gearboxe oil level check 1.3

Having noticed an occasional noise in reverse latley a grumble sort of like something rubbing)grating

Decided to check under the car and there's seems to be a lot oil/grease under the car especially on the gearbox so cleaned it all up and will. Check it again in a week or so


As as a precaution want to check the gearbox oil level it's a case of remove battery and battery tray I think reading other threads anyone confirm?

Re: Gearboxe oil level check 1.3

There is no dip stick or such to measure the level in these gear boxes, all you can do it open the fill plug and put in more fluid till it runs out.

If you doing that you might as well drain off the old fluid first and refill with new, so basically you've done what anyone would suggest.
